A citizen of France was sentenced to about four months in jail for re-entering the United States after having been deported.

Philippe Maurice, 50, was sentenced to the 113 days he has served and a year of supervised release Wednesday by U.S. District Court Judge John A. Woodcock Jr. in Bangor.

U.S. Border Patrol agents said they found Maurice riding a bike on a dirt logging road in Portage on May 17. He claimed to be a U.S. citizen, but when asked for proof of citizenship, he produced a French driver’s license. Maurice then admitted that he was a French citizen and said that friends had dropped him off in Canada near the border and he rode a bike through the closed St. Pamphile Port of Entry.

Records indicated that Maurice had been previously removed from the U.S. in 2015.
